Ferrer & Board

Ferrer Internacional, the leading Spanish pharmaceutical company, achieves an end-to-end integrated planning process from R&D to distribution thanks to Board

Being a fully integrated company, from research and development through to manufacturing, sales and distribution, Ferrer needed an integrated planning process to match. The company was struggling with a plethora of spreadsheets because its analysis and planning processes were based solely on Excel sheets coming from multiple Business Units and Controlling Areas. These Excel files had to be consolidated and summarized before being delivered to the Management Committee, a task which fell under the remit of the Controlling Department, increasing the team’s workload because of its extremely time-consuming nature.

After a review of the market the Board platform was chosen for the project as it could deliver all of the benefits that Ferrer was pursuing.
